(-Note- Using the specific number 47. It's an unspoken Mom rule to always use the number 47 when talking about several things. And, if you happen to be talking about an extra lot of things, you just jump to 1000. Just a little explanation…. we love our Mom!)
This month was filled with a two week vacation, Mom's birthday, the birthday bash (we just recooperated from that one), the pouring in of so many lovely quilt tops for Joplin (update soon, hopefully!), and the launch of two new patterns, along with some other exciting, lots of work, pattern happenings. Hopefully we'll get our act together and share all of that soon! We aren't even going to mention all the regular day-to-day things that have kept us busy. Including a scenario that strangely resembles my thumb incident from earlier this summer. Abigail insists I can't have all the fun by myself. She's a good sister.
We can hardly believe September is over, and we're looking forward to seeing what The Lord has in store for us in October!
And, you are probably wondering about these pictures. Well, it's my first official completed embroidery project. I started on inexpensive flour sack dishtowels (that way I wasn't making a complete mess of something really nice). Now I'm ready to move on to something even more exciting— clothes!
We're off to celebrate the end of the month with pizza and movies!
